SEATTLE — Moments after a car slammed into his RV on Saturday, Tim Andruss, an off-duty Bellevue firefighter/emergency medical technician (EMT), sprang into action to deliver emergency care to the woman driving the vehicle that struck his RV, the Seattle Times reported.

Andruss’ recreational vehicle was broken in two by the force of the collision as he was taking his 22-foot RV to a nearby storage facility, the paper noted.

State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill told the Seattle Times Monday that Andruss’ work at the scene helped save the woman’s life. “She was not in great condition,” Gill said. “I tip my hat off to him. I think that lady is very lucky. Really, you couldn’t find someone that’s better to get in a collision with other than him.”

The crash split the cabin portion of the RV from the rest of the vehicle. Andruss said he was stunned; he was suspended in the air by his seat belt before he could extricate himself from the vehicle.
